Definitely a prize winner! I couldn't find red chili peppers - instead I chopped up a combination of red bell peppers & Hot Portuguese Red Peppers from our garden - and equalled the volume of green chili peppers. For an easy appetizer, I spread a little light cream cheese on a cracker & topped with some relish. Thanx Sharon!

Great relish, and easy to make. My peppers this year (Hot Banana, Cow Horn, Jalapeño) were not as hot as previous years and I wanted the relish to be hot, so I did not remove the seeds. Success! It's a great relish and it's got the kick I wanted it to have. Also the recipe tells you to use X number peppers and 6 - 8 pounds of onions. Since I was not sure of the size of the peppers used in the recipe and how they might compare to mine, I pretty much used a equal amount of onions and peppers which worked very well. Thanks for sharing!

our pepper patch overflowed the garden this year and i've been making all kinds of wonderful things with them. last night i made this with all the strays and randoms i had leftover (greens, reds, hots, milds...), otherwise following your recipe exactly (oh, i did add a tsp of turmeric to the vinegar/sugar step to add a bit of deepness in colour). the recipe was super quick (and i even hand chopped everything!) which is exactly what i was looking for - something to finish off the peppers and the bag of onions taking up space on my counter.

sent my guy out to buy hot dogs for lunch today so we could do a 'real world' taste test (i've never been so excited to eat a hot dog before...). it was WOW - very tangy and sweet (but not TOO sweet) - a perfect balance - and the veg still had a bit of crunch, but only enough to give a good texture. really glad i've got 3 more sealed jars of this stuff but worried i might end up eating too many hot dogs...

thanks for a simple but fabulous recipe for relish exactly how it should be.

This is a great relish. I used 6 different kinds of peppers including 3 habenaros. It is great on hot dogs! Thanks for a great new relish recipe.

Loved it. It was so easy to make and easy to change the heat level. I made it milder for myself and hotter for daughter and son-in-law. Now they want to make it too. (I guess 6 jars just aren't enough for a year!)

I am, right now, making this a second time. The first time all the relish I made was a huge hit and didn't last a week. I added all kinds of hot peppers to my batch. It was delicious!!!! I will be making this relish a lot, so thanks for the recipe!

Made this relish and followed the recipe exactly as shown thought I was getting 7 pints but only made 4 pints, I'm not disappointed though I was very excited with the flavor outcome. I will definitely make it again, but with more peppers and a courser texture.

Looks like I left my veggies in the chopper too long but I guess the flavors will all still be there. How long after making this relish do you need to let it sit before opening and using. I'm anxious to try mine.
